When you prepared to jump into your first AAAMS aesthetic training course, you weren’t entirely sure what to expect. Sure, you reviewed the course description and learning objectives and checked out your instructor’s bio. But the actual experience of taking aesthetic courses? That was a bit of a mystery.
In the back of your mind, you wondered, “Is this course going to be everything I hope it will be? Will the instruction be high-quality yet accessible? Will it give me the tools and knowledge I need to feel confident in my work? Will it turn out to be a good investment in my professional development? And heck, will it be enjoyable?
Having completed your course, you’re happy to find that the answer to each of those questions is a resounding yes! But this surfaces a new question: now what? On the one hand, the obvious answer is that you put your learning into practice. After all, that was the point of taking the course in the first place. But, on the other hand, there are four additional, less obvious steps that can help you move forward successfully. Let’s take a look!
- Update Your Online Professional Profiles and Resume
Anytime you acquire a new skill, certification, or CE credit, you’ll want to update your online professional profiles to reflect this information. This helps boost your professional visibility, build your reputation, attract clients to your practice, and create a more impressive resume.
- Network with Other Professionals
Networking plays a crucial part in professional success. It provides invaluable peer support and collaboration and opens doors to new career opportunities. We make networking incredibly easy with the AAAMS Aesthetic Network platform. The platform instantly connects you with aspiring and practicing aesthetics professionals once you become an aesthetic network member.
- Share Your Knowledge
Many studies demonstrate that sharing your knowledge and exploring it with others has powerful learning benefits. This is because when you share your knowledge and skills with others, you’re forced to think in new ways, refine your understanding, and expand your perspective. The AAAMS Aesthetic Network was designed with peer-to-peer knowledge-sharing in mind. This means you’ll not only have a chance to share your understanding but also to learn from others, making the platform an incredibly rich learning resource.
- Continue to Invest in Your Professional Development
The most respected, influential, and successful professionals are those who never stop learning and growing, and that’s why you’ll want to continue to invest in aesthetic training and your overall professional development. Now that you know what to expect from your online learning experience, there’s nothing to stop you from enrolling in your next course! With so many courses to choose from, AAAMS gives you everything you need to successfully undertake the journey of becoming a master of your craft!
By updating your professional profile and resume, networking with other professionals, sharing your knowledge, and continuing to invest in your personal development, the answer to what now? is clear. We wish you the best of luck on your learning adventure and look forward to training with you!
